First room was pretty hot, but they moved us with no problem. Rooms were spacious and clean. Internet was not very good at all. Got an "alright" connection in the first room (close to office), NO connection in the next room, but was able to get a great connection from the Motel next door.

So we made this stop on our trip across country. We called ahead and got a slightly discounted price for doing a reservation. The guy that worked the office was extremely nice and helpful. I wasn't expecting much from this place, but it was better than expected. Our room was very clean, with very clean floors. I see some bad... More

I hadn't even checked in yet when the problems started. The young man at reception wouldn't honor the online advertised price for a single, non smoking room even when I showed him a printout of the ad. However, being tired from a long day on the road I told the man I would take the room in spite of the... More

We stopped just for the night. Easy access from the freeway. Pet friendly and I love being able to park outside my room door. Beds were okay. Microwave and refrig in rooms. Some minor issues that were irritating - low shower head, loud vent in bathroom, TV channels were not as listed on the card in the room, TV remote... More

We should have ran when we walked in the lobby and noticed the unpleasant odor but it was 11:30 pm and we'd been driving all day and he girl at the front desk was very friendly so I thought I could overlook it. The room smelled worse...I had to spray cologne to make it tolerable. The sheets were obviously soiled... More

This is by far the most disgusting hotel in town! Its a mess. The staff are rude and disrespectful. The rooms are unclean! The smell of the hotel from the lobby is like a bathroom! Mice all over the place!

Stayed here 3rd week of June 2013. We got a late start from KC area, and this is as far as we could make it so we stopped here because it was inexpensive and low points on Choice Privilege Reward night. Room was nothing special, a little dated and kept my socks on when walking around. Air conditioner was noisy... More

Was assigned this hotel via a website where you pay first to get a great price. The price was great, the hotel was not. The room was very outdated with threadbare towels and barely lukewarm water. It was fairly clean and the bed was fairly comfortable, but the whole place had a feeling of rundown and badly in need of... More

The rooms are nasty. The beds are horribly uncomfortable. The shower was nasty, really nasty. The toilet came up off the wall. The pool was DISGUSTING. Hadn't been clean. It's bad when the guests clean it themselves and the worker comes out and doesn't even bother helping. We were swimming with thousand of bugs and I kid you not something... More

I wasn't impressed, nor was I upset. It's a safe, semi-clean room with working a/c and wifi. The staff who checked us in was friendly. I would suggest you go somewhere else for breakfast though. Or bring something - we had a microwave and minifridge. The food didn't look all that tasty and therefore didn't even try it. There is... More
